Recently, Dave Harford set up a blog to talk about things that required more characters than Twitter allows. His first post is about teenage drivers, and I agree with his sentiments.

He’s elderly, but not old. 70s, I guess. He’s slumped on the floor in the kitchen and it’s clear he’s been there for some time. He’s cold, stiff, dead. He’s the first dead person I’ve seen and I’m here as the professional. I’m a volunteer who, just a year or so ago, hadn’t done any
